***SOURCE IS BUNDLED WITH THE DOWNLOADS***

Manipulate art IN 3D(!) and find the circle. And do it before the timer runs out. Simply move the geometry around until you see any after image of the circle and then click on it to score a point. Or... try and make something pretty and screenshot it! ;)

I took the idea of "one screen" to mean no screen refreshing. There is never any background drawing in this game, everything you do is indelibly etched and I never use a fill to remove anything that's been put on screen. You literally only get one screen, from when the program ends to when it starts.

Hey, on mac you have to allow to run unsigned apps. In Settings-> Security&Privacy -> Allow apps downloaded from: Anywhere.

I had the same issue with your game

Only a white screen (Windows 7), but Screenshots look awesome!

I liked the concept, but the execution could've been better. Good idea, though!

It's hard to catch the circle, but I think that's good. Nice and beautiful.

Cool visuals for a strange project, but why not?

I can't seem to run it. The application opens, but all I see is a single white window. Am I supposed to wait longer? I admit I have a wonky computer at the moment, so I may try another machine later.

Really interesting concept! :D
It hurts the eyes but it's fun to play.
Great job.

This was surprisingly run, and quite hard. The best I did after 5 or so tries was three circles. The best strategy I found was to look for the object that left an unbroken streak when rotating the pieces as the circles had no border. My only issue is that in nearly each search you would have a few items bunched up near the same quarter of the view. Almost all of the shapes bunched tight together in a small section of the screen a few larger one off to one side, and then a large empty section. If the circle was in the tight bunch of shapes, it was nearly impossible to see.

I tried reimaging the computer, but to no avail. I still only get a white screen. I have JRE 8 installed.

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) and you will show up. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
